This was the highlight of our visit to New York. Excellant food! Unpretentious atmosphere. Of course we were on foot and we were late into the evening (no crowd). We will defintely go back.

This is an all-vegetarian restaurant, specializing in mock meat. Food is good but prices are on the higher side, thankfully not outrageous. Most times I've gone, it was crowded though, probably due to its close proximity to NYU. It's best to schedule a reservation and come in small groups. Location is several blocks from the subway line, which can be tough in cold weather.

According to a recent vegetarian convert who used to love real cheesesteak. Red Bamboo is easy to love, even if you are not a vegetarian. All the food is fantastic. I actually really like the soy product used for the citrus beef and the barbecue steak sandwich (formerly the cheesesteak)--it is tougher than they soy chicken and somewhat chewy, as another reviewer pointed out, but I find it the perfect texture for the sauces it appears in--especially in the sandwich. Readers who enjoy this restaurant should also try Vegetarian's Paradise down the street (same owners, I think)--it's a bit cheaper and has more of an asian tilt; perhaps it's a better option for a quick lunch, while Red Bamboo could be reserved for a nice dinner.

I am not a vegetarian however I go to the Red Bamboo at least twice a week. The food is excellent. I love everything on the menu even the desserts. And trust me I tasted everything on the menu. Everyone should try this place even if you are a meat lover. I know you too would be addicted.

It is nice to be able to find many veggie and vegan options at a restaurant. Great food and a good value. Highly recommended!!!

I love everything I've eaten here, but the Soul Chicken is by far my favorite. There is often a line on weekend nights, so be prepared to wait, but you will be rewarded with the most convincing mock-meat ever.
